Well preserved and full of history. It is a must see if you are in San Juan. The various exhibits are informative, allowing you to learn the history of Europeans in Puerto Rico and the role of the island in the Spanish American war.

My husband, kids, and I loved visiting the Castillo. It was fun and educational. My favorite part was seeing the boat renderings by the prisoner in the dungeon and exploring the tunnels. We only spent about 2 hours here because our time was limited, but...More

This is a very well restored/kept national treasure. Well worth the $7 entrance fee to see the exhibits and enjoy the fort and views. Not a bad walk from the cruise terminal, along the old town and shops. Definitely on the list to see again.

Beautiful fort, worth visiting! The entrance fee is $7/person and you can use the receipt to also enter the nearby fort. This fort is worth a visit though, so much history and there’s great information/facts throughout the fort that provides so much context! This is...More

You really don’t need a guide or a translator. Old San Juan is small and can be walked completely without too much effort. Also there are buses that are free and will take you there. If you feel you do need a guide anda... More
